Roosting in a public space

When it comes to the annual Challenge Bird Count in December we know where to look for the Nankeen Night Heron. Without fail we find several at their daytime roost in this group of trees, Stone Pines, in a public space in Geelong. (There are several Night Herons in the photo below.) We tick them off and quickly move on to find the next species. Bird-watching on the run but a lot of fun.

It always surprises me how birds in one place will become quite used to the presence of humans and yet the same species in a different place are quite shy and won't let you get anywhere near.
